Fashion icon and pop singer Rihanna is ready to release her new album for her excited fans, but she is not ready for a child. Amidst the swirl of rumors regarding Rihanna's supposed pregnancy, the singer confirmed that there is no baby as of yet.

The rumors started when Rihanna shocked fans with a sonogram photo shown on Media Take Out. Allegedly, Rihanna was nine weeks pregnant when the photo was taken. Even before Rihanna denied the rumors, experts were debunking the claim.

Dr. Linda Burke-Galloway is an OB-GYN and the author of "the Smart Mother's Guide to a Better Pregnancy." When she looked at Rihanna's alleged sonogram, she disagreed with the statement that Rihanna is nine weeks pregnant, and still not showing a baby bump.

Dr. Linda reported, "The picture appears to be of a fetus that is already into the second trimester. It is more advanced than nine weeks." She is supported by Dr. Daniel Roshan of NYU Langone Medical Center, who also believes that the baby is much too large for the claim of nine weeks. "To me looks like 12 to 13 weeks," he said.

Rihanna's real name appeared on the sonogram, but that could just be the magic of Photoshop.

For the "Diamonds" singer, this rumor is just too unrealistic. Rihanna has been single since her split with Drake early this year. She is busy working on her studio album, code-named R8.

On that note, fans are told to expect the new album in 2015. It is very unlikely that the hard-working singer would be able to manage her new album and a new child at the same time.
